sides for lamb shanks - not potato based?

Made the lamb shank recipe from last week. Normally I would think to serve with risotto or a mashed potato type side because of the delicious sauce. However, my wife isn't eating rice, potatoes or pasta. Any suggestions?

Polenta or white beans cooked with herbs (lots of recipes out there) would also be good. Personally, when in doubt, I am always for potatoes, but that's just my own preference... Probably in my genes.

I heartily agree. White beans scented with an abundance of fresh rosemary and olive oil are very traditional.

I agree on the polenta- and making a "fresh" version with real corn in it would be good. I also love a crisp salad with shaved fennel, orange and herbs with lamb shanks- it cuts through the fat nicely. You could also make chickpea "fries" like these: https://food52.com/recipes.... I had added sweet potato to mine, but you could do kabocha squash too.

Hi - I would do my Vivaldi's Four Seasons Salad - it would be a good counterpoint to the lamb shanks - https://food52.com/recipes...
